Every girl should have a secret keeper. A person to whom they can open up their hearts to. When their moods decides to go for a wild swing someone should be there to hug her and say its all going to be okay. Someone who knows exactly how she feels. Someone who will tell her she's not over reacting, she's not mental, and she's definitely not blabbering.
That's where girlfriends come in. I don't know of if Train meant 'Soul Sister' for girlfriends when he sung that song. But I get a feeling that your girlfriends are your Soul Sisters.
In that case I happened to be lucky to have two of them. I'll never say they are the perfect girls out there. But they are perfect for me. Both of them are not at all alike. If my one girlfriend is North Pole, the other one is South Pole, which leaves me being the Equator.
To start with one of them, I first met her on my first day of college. There I was sitting with my mother rating every person passing by ( I know, sooo rude of us ), then we both saw this girl wearing a sweater, sitting with her dad like she owned the place. I knew then and there, that, this girl is going to be my best friend. Of course, she felt I was creepy, grinning at her every time I saw her. But our friendship kicked out soon after we both started talking over a book (String theory, which she admitted later that she had no clue about, and which I'm really into). We became the best buddies ever since then. She literally stood before me when ever trouble came my way and which was always. I was the little chirpy girl, skipping through the college like a toddler (I know, so lame of me), and she protected me like a mother goose. When I graduated college and left for the new job I was so sad that we could never sit around that college and laugh at stupid little things. But some people teach you many lessons in life, like wise she taught me that no distance can ruin or lessen the bond we shared. I could still catch up with her in old spirit every time we call each other. In so many ways we both were alike, but still both of us were unique.
Now talking about my other girlfriend, we both are never the kind of people who would never get along well in normal circumstances. She was everything I was against. To be clear we can say, I belong to the Mathletes and she belong to the Plastics. Like I said our circumstances were never normal ( come to think about it, nothing normal ever happened to me!!! ). And ever since that one incident which made us work together we have been inseparable. We never agreed on anything together. We never picked the same choices. She hates everything sweet and strawberries and I hate chocolates. I'm obsessed with the colour pink and she barfs at pink. We fight for very silly things but never had a fight that lasted one whole day. She can read my mind and me hers.
We never judge each other because whatever she do, I know what and why she did it. Its easy to be with her. No matter how much down I am, she gets me smiling in less than 5 mins( you can bet on that). And yes, I would do anything for her.
No matter how many boyfriends come and go, I know for one thing, that your girlfriends are there to stay forever. They are the only ones who will know you inside out. And I love them to my heart.
